Do the work

The only way to fulfillment and meaningful life work is doing the work. No one can do your work for you because it’s not only about the end result. It’s fighting the resistance, it’s combating your inner demons, it’s showing up and doing the work, day in and day out. Only you can do it.

Our enemy is not lack of preparation; it’s not the difficulty of the project, or the state of the marketplace or the emptiness of our bank account.
The enemy is resistance.
The enemy is our chattering brain, which, if we give it so much as a nanosecond, will start producing excuses, alibis, transparent self-justifications and a million reasons why he can’t/shouldn’t/won’t do what we know we need to do.
